Bloomberg, Vanity Fair win business journalism awards from Silurians
A Bloomberg series on how Wall Street is addressing technological and strategic changes to its business has won the business and financial news category at the Silurians’ annual Excellence in Journalism Awards.
Here are the buisness journalism winners:
NEWSPAPER, WIRE SERVICE AND ONLINE
Medallion: Bloomberg News for “The New Wall Street” by Hugh Son, Matt Leising and Annie Massa.
The Bloomberg team wins for a deeply reported and well-written series of articles, broadly titled examining the technological and strategic developments that are dramatically changing the operations of the global financial industry and the face of its work force.
COMMENTARY AND EDITORIALS
Medallion: Susan Antilla, TheStreet.com, “An Advocate for Ordinary People.”
Antilla’s series of columns examines how policies adopted by companies, stockbrokers and politicians seriously damage the interests of ordinary Americans.
Merit Award: Bloomberg Businessweek, “The Journalist and the Troll” by Dune Lawrence.
Lawrence tells the chilling story of how she was professionally maligned and personally smeared during two years of cyber assault — and how the law can enable such abuse under the cloak of “free speech.”
Business Reporting Medallion: Vanity Fair, “Roger, Over and Out” by Sarah Ellison.
Ellison illuminated the shadowy world inside the Fox News bunker: a place where Roger Ailes had security cameras trained on his office door and kept two guns at the ready and where Ailes was in unchallenged control even as whispers of sexual misconduct persisted. Ellison showed how Fox News intentionally limited its internal investigation into Ailes’ misconduct in order to keep the network’s powerful profit machine on track.
Medallions and Merit Certificates will be awarded in 21 print, broadcast and online categories at the Silurians’ annual awards dinner on May 17 at the National Arts Club. The first honors were handed out in 1945.
